About Kathy Richardson
London based but internationally born and raised, I am a Dance Artist, Yoga teacher, creative mover and anatomy enthusiast. The synchronicity of mind and body is a part of my everyday life, anything from a physical practice to daily meditation.
I have worked with bodies in motion for over two decades and although progress has been anything but linear, my journey has taken me to dancing in internationally acclaimed companies, workshopping choreographic processes in schools, teaching yoga in the tropics and studying the human form under an array of teachers from a multitude of backgrounds. What I have is an ever-growing respect of the power of movement meditation and what I know is how it has highly enhanced my human experience.
My journey with yoga began over a decade ago, primarily as a tool to enhance and compliment the rigorous training of becoming a professional dancer. Very quickly I found myself evermore inspired by the depth and potential yoga has to offer both on and off the mat, for body and mind.
I am passionate about Anatomy and Physiology and how this informs yoga practitioners.
